Nikon selling refurbished lenses for more than brand new ones?
Dec 9, 2010

I just received an email from Nikon with a link to their outlet store. They are offering refurbished lenses for more than it would cost to buy them new. What's with that?

examples:

10-24DX, brand new from my local camera store's website for $820, but $864 refurbished from Nikon.

105F2.8 AF-S Micro, brand new local camera store's website for $890, refurbished from Nikon its $945.

24-70 F2.8 AF-S - $1720 at the local camera store's web site, $1814 refurbished from Nikon.
